Portland Fire Station 7 Finalist in America's Best Firehouse BBQ Cook-Off
June 23, 2011
Portland Fire & Rescue’s (PF&R) Station 7 has the chance to win $10,000 in America’s Best Firehouse BBQ Cook-Off presented by Tree Top, and YOU can help!
Earlier this year, Tree Top invited firefighters from all over the United States to enter their most delicious, mouth-watering BBQ recipe using Tree Top apple juice or apple sauce, and PF&R’s Station 7 firefighters stepped up to the challenge.
Station 7 was selected as one of the ten finalists in the cookoff! As a finalist, firefighters were required to record a video that explained why Station 7’s firehouse and recipe was deserving of the $10,000 prize.
Station 7 firefighters created two crowd-pleasing recipes that best represented their fire station. The AppleWood Smoked Chicken is made with Tree Top apple juice while the Waldorf Salad includes Tree Top apple sauce. Both recipes are posted online at http://www.portlandonline.com/fire/treetoprecipes.
For the next six weeks, the public will have the chance to watch the videos online and vote for their favorite all-American firehouse. Help Portland Fire’s Station 7 to win $10,000 by accessing http://americasbestfirehousebbq.com/ and voting each day for the “Portland State Hazmat Team #7, Tree Top Fresh, Applewood Smoked Chicken.”
If Station 7 wins the grand prize of $10,000, the money will be donated to a non-profit charitable organization that focuses on helping the families of first responders during crisis situations.
